- National Teams
The British Basketball Federation has revealed the squad list for the Great Britain Under-16 men, with the players that were in contention for 2020 European Championships, which have been cancelled due to COVID-19.
Unable to name the final-12 due to training camps and all preparation not taking place, the BBF wanted to formally recognise the players who were going to be called up to fight for a place in the squad.
The Under-16s were to be coached by Troy Culley this year. Tyrese Lacey (pictured above), Dara Adeyemi, and Louie Tucker are the only players to be named who made the final 12 last summer as younger players.
Charlie Ford, Chair of the Youth Teams Performance Group said: “Although we understand that nothing can replace the opportunity to pull on the GB jersey, sing the national anthem and compete for European Championship medals, we hope that this announcement will be met with pride and a continued intention to be part of future squads whether that be at youth or senior level.
“Following today’s announcement, the representative performance leads in each home nation will be in touch with players individually to discuss next steps and support that is available.”
